American Bulldog Puppies
Description: The American Bulldog is bred from working dogs and designed for catching livestock and protecting property. They are larger then their close relatives, the Old English Bulldog. American Bulldogs are a powerful, athletic short-coated dog, strongly muscled and well boned. The head is large and broad with a wide muzzle, and with very powerful jaws. American Bulldogs generate the impression of great strength, endurance and exhibit a well-knit, sturdy compact frame. The American Bulldog should be evaluated as a working dog, and exaggerations or faults should be penalized in proportion to how much they interfere with the dog's ability to work. The American Bulldog is a gentle and loving dog, affectionate with their owners. They are fearless when it comes to defending, however, and they do so very well. The American Bulldog can get along well with pets it has been raised with, but may be dog aggressive with dogs of the same sex. This breed gets along well with children and is a joy to a home.
